The lower deck on the press box side of Milan Puskar Stadium was nearly full, and a smattering of people were present in the top deck on the same side.
While no official attendance figure had been released yet, this reporter would estimate the crowd at somewhere around 15,000 fans strong.
As per usual, the entirety of the proceeds from ticket sales for the game will go to the WVU Children's Hospital. Head coach Bill Stewart said he has been pleased to continue that tradition, which began in 1980 when Don Nehlen arrived in Morgantown.
Brown found success improvising at times against the Blue defense and got away with some throws that may have been possible turnovers against higher-caliber opposition.
"He wants to make every play, but you have to learn when to retreat," Stewart said. "You have to protect the football. You don't have to be perfect, but sometimes youngsters think they have to make every play.
"He's not dangerous. He's not reckless. He's just eager, and he has to be careful."
"This is Jarrett Brown's team," Stewart said. "He is special. All he has ever done is win, and he is a phenomenal young man. I hope he will be blessed by the football gods and have a banner senior year. He deserves it."
Also spotted on the sidelines of Mountaineer Field were departed wide receivers Dorrell Jalloh and Tito Gonzales. Among those from the less recent past in attendance were former quarterback Major Harris, defensive back Angel Estrada, safety Brian King, guard Terry Dixon, and defensive back Lew Daniels.
The Blue offense managed only 61 total yards on its 24 other plays and drove no farther than the Gold 37-yard line in the entire game.
His was perhaps the most outstanding statistical defensive performance on a day that saw the No. 1 defense play at a level that satisfied Stewart.
